Lives of Taoist priests on Laoshan Mountain

A Taoist priest reads a book on Laoshan Mountain. Taiqing Palace on the mountain is one of the most famous Taoist temples in existence. It was built in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) under the reign of Emperor Kangxi in 1663, but was renamed as Taiqing palace during Emepror Qianlong's reign in 1768. The palace contains 100 rooms and covers an area of 5,200 square meters. [Photo by Li Qide/dailyqd.com]
